Conquering the Summer Bucket List

You may recall that we joined The Happy Family Movement and created our own Summer Bucket List.  With our move only 15 days away, we decided it was be deliberate or miss out on the fun.  We even decided how to document our progress.

Each item on our list is now highlighted on a 8x12 piece of paper to be displayed in our house.  (that part will have to wait 2 weeks)  Then, once a bucket list item is complete we will add a picture or two to that "banner" thus preserving the memories and giving us a visual of what we have accomplished.

Since we are moving to South Dakota, did I mention in under THREE weeks, we decided we better get started with our beach trip!  Can I confess that though my hubby and I both grew up in North Carolina and spent TONS of time at the beach, we had never gone to the Outer Banks?  I know, pitiful!  So with the help of some wonderful friends that loaned us their beach house for three nights, we were off.


all pictures taken by ALP!

Really!  We could not have asked for better weather and as a bonus the Wright Brother's Memorial was practically right across the street so we got to take the kids there one afternoon as well.  Bonus!

There's a lesson for never know when one bucket list item will lead to a surprise another one.

we'll put a little pin beside each completed item!


  1. Just catching up on your blog posts and was delighted to see Minot on your bucket list! Hooray! If you make it to ND, though I know your time will be precious, we'd delight in seeing you if you have extra minutes to spare.

    1. We would love to see you all! Looking at the first week in august I think!

  2. The pictures look like you had a blast. Love your bucket list.

  3. Sounds like a great summer bucket list. We don't do much as hubby still has to work. Our summers are full of playing at the park and summer reading programs.

    1. Sometimes playing at the park is the best part of summer! Enjoy!


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you!
